35. Grow And Sell Your Own Produce
If you have a yard (and a green thumb), you can potentially grow and sell your own produce. Maybe you were lucky enough to buy a home with mature fruit trees, and every year you get a large amount of fruit. You can sell that yourself or even pay a company to come harvest it for you.
You can also grow your own fruit and vegetables and sell it through programs like Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).

Offer Your Expertise
If you’re an expert in something, consider creating resources to teach other people. Once you’ve made the initial effort of putting together the content, it can act as a passive income stream.
Online courses, webinars, and ebooks are all common ways to share information. You can build and promote the resources on your own or use educational platforms that already have established communities, such as Udemy or Skillshare.
24. Create And Sell Stationary
Are you in love with stationary products? Maybe cards, invitations, and more? Do you have a knack for putting together beautiful and complex wedding invitations? If so, there is a huge opportunity to profit online from the comfort of your own home.
This task does require you leave your house to buy supplies, but all the work can take place at home. If you can print and assemble stationary like invitations, and love crafting and decorating, you can easily make money from home.

2 – Publish your first book
If you’ve got a passion for words and want to write a book, it’s easier than you think to self-publish. Although you may not sell as many copies as J.K. Rowling, you can still earn a nice steady stream of income from it.
Selling your book through Amazon KDP is the best way to go – you can upload your manuscript and front cover to its website. Not only do they print paperback copies of your book for you, but they make your own Kindle version in order for people to buy.
On average, you earn around 70% of each book sold if it’s a Kindle edition, which may not add up to much if your book is around the average price of £2-4, but the strength is in numbers.
Our very own Andy Leeks published a book on Amazon once and it skyrocketed to become a bestseller, earning him a nice payday. Here’s what he said:
‘What started out as a challenge to write a book on my daily commute ended up being a surprise Amazon bestseller. The extra income enabled my wife to give up her stressful job so that she could focus on bringing up our young children’
6 – Complete surveys for cash
Filling out surveys might take a while, but stick at it and you can start to build up some cash just by clicking a few buttons. On average you’ll probably take around 10 minutes to complete each one, but if you’ve got nothing else to do it can become a nice little earner.
The top survey websites are Swagbucks and Toluna. As you start to fill out the surveys, it will check if you are the right person for the questions based on your answers, so be aware that you may be kicked out of some surveys before you are able to finish.
If you are eligible, your rate of pay varies on how long the surveys are, but completing one a day will see you earn about £5 per week – which of course can be scaled if you have time for more.
17. Your Great Photos Are Worth Money
Could you believe that a 42-year old man from Maine made $2,000 for something that took him only a fraction of a second to do?
Well, that is exactly what happened when Adam Hamilton had a photo he took sell to Puma for the impressive $2,000 price tag.
In the modern day with almost everyone over the age of 10 having a camera-equipped smartphone in their pocket, everyone has the capabilities to be a photographer.
These cameras on smartphones are consistently getting more advanced every year, which means that almost anybody can take fantastic photos.
Some of these enthralling photos can actually be worth money on sites that sell images.
There are a number of sites that will buy your images and sell them to the masses, including:
6. Take Online Surveys
While taking short and simple online surveys isn’t likely to make you Warren Buffet, they do provide a sure-fire way to make some extra dough for your evening and weekend enjoyment.
These sites hire individuals from across the globe to complete thousands of different surveys and paying the survey-takers in a variety of ways from gift cards, to reward points to cold hard cash.
As you would expect, most online surveys pay a few dollars for a few minutes of work. Of course, the longer a survey takes or the more in-depth it is, the more you will get paid. There are hundreds of websites that you can find these surveys, including:
- Pinecone Research
8-Become a Transcriptionist
There is a lot of money that you can make as a transcriptionist. While it can require some training. You can easily do it from you couch.
Check out this post for more on how to becoming a transcriptionist.
5- Babysitting or Petsitting
I can’t tell you the amount of people I know who need a good sitter. Speaking from someone who has kids, a solid baby sitter is worth their weight in gold. If you can be that reliable person who can take care of their precious little baby (or fur baby) while they are out, you can make a killing!
Make yourself available, take out a post on Craigslist or Kijiji and see how you do.
4. Get paid to take surveys online
Whether you are interested in sports, new technology or health and beauty, there's a survey out there that you can get paid for taking.
Survey taking is something that really anyone can do. You get paid to share your feedback on a new product or service. Most sites require you to build a profile of information about yourself when you set up an account so that they can match you to surveys that fit your interests.
While each survey pays a certain amount, your compensation can vary depending on the survey company. They may pay you through cash, check, PayPal, gift cards or rewards.
There are endless websites out there that advertise paid survey opportunities, so read reviews of the website prior to signing up so you know it's not a scam. Grant Sabatier of Millennial Money listed the most reputable survey sites on his website, and some trusted ones you can use include Survey Junkie, Swagbucks and Vindale Research.
Be a caregiver
29. Pet sitting
Do you adore pets? Go for pet sitting at your place. Make sure your house can accommodate numerous pets.
Websites like Care.com brings together pet sitters and people looking for pet care. Remember to quote your rates wisely.
30. At-home daycare
If you are home with your children, why not start an at home daycare.
They are highly sought out in our area of Dallas because people like that they are close and that there are much fewer children involved that a more corporate daycare.
You will need to get a certification from your state, but you can make big bucks caring for children while getting to spend the day with your children as well.
The Bottom Line
Growing your venture takes time, and you’ll likely need to put several different income streams together. Find ways to incorporate different moneymaking aspects into one business model. For example, you may be focused primarily on making money through vlogging, but you also bring in funds with affiliate marketing and an online course you created that teaches others how to build their own YouTube channel.
There are lots of opportunities to make money from home; don’t be afraid to try out different options to determine the best fit for you.
